Solutions for production processes and manufacturing plants

New production processes and more flexible production systems place ever greater demands on automation systems and thus also on the software. Without software that is up to the task, these complex processes cannot be mastered.

 

Our production management systems are real-time, database-driven software system solutions modelling complex production and process structures. They control production efficiently and take into account all the activities required by MESA (Manufacturing Execution Solutions Association) and VDI 5600. They connect the machine / plant automation on the one hand with enterprise resource planning systems (ERP) on the other. And they enable complete and verifiable traceability of products and resources across the entire production chain, from ordering to shipping.

Software Basis

Seamless flow of information

Standard software

For default software, we use MES / Operations Software and ArchestrA System Platform from Schneider Electric Systems Germany GmbH / Wonderware. Furthermore, Microsoft SQL Server databases with web-based control / display and evaluation tools are employed. We develop our standard software based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. The applications are deployed in physical environments or on Private Clouds using Microsoft Hyper-V or VMWare ESXi.

Commissioning / Services

The commissioning of MAR applications is an integral part of our projects. As our customers are based around the globe, worldwide deployments of our technicians and engineers have become a matter of course over the years.

We start commissioning work even before delivery. Detailed test plans are coordinated with our customers and tailored to their requirements. So as early as in the test environment, we ensure that on site, we can concentrate on the process-relevant settings, optimizations and acceptance tests. This saves costs and makes for high operating safety.

All applications designed by MAR are technically ready for remote maintenance via the Internet. Today this is the standard and a basic prerequisite for high availability at greatly reduced idle times.
